Passion . Love . Mastery

Your journey starts here

The best actor in the room is the best listener in the room. We teach hyper-listening through ever evolving techniques that allow our actors to “live their truth” while in front of the camera, on-stage and in their daily lives. The two core concepts from which everything is built are script and improvisation. We are not interested in a good performance. In fact we are not interested in “performance” at all. We engage in truth which is where ‘great’ lives – and ‘great’ is something we are very interested in. Great scripted work should look, sound and feel like improvisation; like the actor is creating the lines from thin air. Great improvisation, in our studio, will look, sound and feel like a scripted play that has been precisely blocked and rehearsed. Once students have progressed through these concepts there is a master level course that brings it all together.

These simple yet profound ideas are at the heart of every program from the Master Class and Core Curriculum to the Teen and Youth Programs. We believe in developing a hunger for mastery at every level and every age. There is no beginning and there is no end to our program because we simply think there’s a better way. As a studio we will always be evolving, therefore the curriculum and the growth of our student’s cannot be held captive by superficial levels. At Dearing Acting Studio there are no gimmicks, no excuses, no glass ceilings. You will see the difference and love our process or your money back, guaranteed.

Sweeney

Instructor / Studio Process Director / Founding Member Of Dearing Acting Studio

Brian is a walking miracle. A bad case of strep pneumonia left him in a two week coma with only a 3% chance of survival. Keeping him alive required the removal of his fingers and toes. Brian woke up with a renewed spirit and full of joy. In addition to the teaching and inspiration he brings to our studio Brian is a sought after motivational speaker. He also is the director of the Dearing Acting Studio improv group Chaos Comedy and president of pending non-profit Lighthouse Theater whose mission is to “be a light” in the entertainment industry.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
